Diner Reviews
  • "The location, looking over the Pacific is breathtaking. The food was quite good, though not on the same level as some of the very best restaurants I've been to. For the price, I was expecting a little more, flavor-wise. Portions were quite hearty. The service was not very attentive. We waited for about 10 minutes to get menus and a wine list after being seated, and when we placed our order, the waiter spent part of the time looking over at another table, which resulted in him almost bringing the wrong wine. Fortunately (I guess), he came to suggest a different bottle, which he thought was similar to what we ordered, and we clarified and got the one we originally ordered. Minor problems, but gave us the feel that we weren't a top priority."

  • "Loved the setting and service. Wine list was excellent. My food was great (duck). My husband had the halibut, and it was a bit bland and slightly overdone. Would definitely go back."

  • "Beautiful romantic dinner--outside dining with tremendous ocean view. Food was top notch. Portions were fine--we left plenty full. We brought bottle from our cellar, but we were offered tour after dinner of their terrific cellar. Service was outstanding. Brought out an off-menu dessert based on a comment my wife made--very special. Highly recommend."

  • "If you can throw about $150 a plate and drink without remorse, then here is a great place to do it. No oversized portions either."

  • "We had an enjoyable evening, server was nice but the other gentlemen that served the food and cleared the dishes were very nice and friendly. The food menu is not very large in our opinion but it was good enough for us to find something to eat. My husband had the Rib Steak, what they are known for according to the server. It was good but it was nothing special, disappointing since we were expecting something special for a signature dish. I had the scallops, they were delicious but in my opinion the sear on one side was way too much for such a delicate item. It would have been perfect if they backed off the heavy sear on one side. Overall the appetizer and dinner were good but not what i expected with such high praises from Reviews."

  • "Miro at Bacara was a wonderful surprise. The service was excellent with a very attentive wait staff and the food was very good. The beet salad was beautifully arranged and absolutely delicious. my steelhead trout was moist and combined with the various small portion vegetable accents made the dish a wonderfully tasty treat. The portions were generous and each had their own wonderful flavor."

  • "The restaurant was beautiful, the ambiencewonderful, and the service was great. The dishes were gorgeous and delicious but the chef needs to remember that people are also coming here to eat to fulfill that natural need to survive. Just to put things in perspective, I am a 5 foot 9 inch woman who weighs 135 pounds. I never eat huge quantities of food and i must I tell you that the $32 risoto ENTRE was meager at best, beautiful but really inadequate. $32 for less than 3.2 ounces of risotto, this is rice people. My spouse and I will laugh about this meal for years to come but we won't be back."

  • "We stayed at Bacara over the weekend and glad we had the chance to dine at Bacara. Actually there is little reason to leave the resort. The decor was really beautiful and the ambiance was romantic, upscale and great views of the pacific. It was a high-end and quiet experience...no kids running around so perfect for romantic dinners. Our servers were outstanding. Everyone knew every detail of the dishes and how they were prepared. And they were sooo attentive and nice. I would defintely go back and this time around, won't bother going outside of the hotel!"

  • "Our dinner started out great with prompt attention, wine and appetizer courses. Very personable and enthusiastic waiter who knew a lot about the extensive wine list and gave beautiful descriptions and recommendations of the food. Unfortunately there must have been a problem in the kit he because it took far to long to get our entrees...people around us who were seated after us were finished with dessert before we got our entrees! Hopefully this was just a one off because everything go else about the evening was great. The food truly is excellent and the wine list includes many half bottles which is nice. The tagliatelli with truffles is to die for!"

  • "Stayed at Bacara. Sat on the patio, very nice ambiance. Service seemed great but there were fits and starts to mention like having to flag someone down for a water refill many times. Seemed like when you needed them, hard to find. But when the servers and backwaiters were nearby, they were great. One issue with the food- ordered the seabass. We eat this all the time- there was something off about it. Had to send it back Great wine list/sides very good- brussel sprouts & truffle macncheese. Beware, entrees are very small, and descriptions are not always what they say. Ex: "Fried Brussel sprouts with bacon" is really sauteed sprouts with pulled pork. Overall, recommend."

  • "Our experience dining here was impeccable. The presentation of the food was beautiful. The food was divine. The service was fantastic. I started with the gnocchi and my husband enjoyed the lobster. What wonderful ways to start the meal. For entrees I selected the short rib while my husband ordered the scallops. We thoroughly enjoyed both. We will definitely come again!"

  • "For $90 per person, my family and I were expecting a delicious holiday dinner. All of the courses lacked flavor including the turkey main course. I had the salmon and it was okay. The people and service was great but I'll never eat here again and I will not recommend anyone to dine here. Sorry,"

  • "Went to Miro for the special Thanksgiving dinner. Some of the food was okay. The turkey was terrible. Actually, it was worse than cafeteria turkey. It was dry and the dark meat was so grisly it was inedible. Very disappointing. The service was very slow. Even with a minimal amount of choices, the wait staff repeatedly served one person's order to another person. At $90 per person, this was a huge waste of money."

  • "We had Thanksgiving dinner here and it was wonderful. The food was excellent and served beautifully. Delicious flavors and even better than we anticipated. We would highly recommend Miro for a special occasion or a romantic date night. Our servers were extremely professional and very personable. The ocean view is lovely and we will definitely be back!"
